Chase Daniel was not joking Wednesday night when he tweeted that workers at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport in Atlanta egged the team buses of the New Orleans Saints.

Now, those workers could be facing discipline. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports the situation is under investigation and discipline is “likely” for those involved after the prank.

“It has been confirmed that eggs were thrown at a New Orleans Saints’ charter bus as they departed the ramp last night,” airport spokeswoman Myrna White said in a statement, according to the AJC. “Airline workers were in the ramp area. Airport and airline officials are investigating the incident and further information will be forthcoming.”

The airport already has a list of suspects and they are to meet with general manager Louis Miller.

“Disciplinary action will be taken,” White said.

The rivalry will take the field tonight when the Saints and Falcons play at the Georgia Dome. Leave your carton of eggs at home.
